Some times insperation comes right in the middle of a project that, well side tracks you. I had seen a documentary film on the “Three Toed Sloth”. I was working on X-2‘s arms and hands and it hit me. This has three fingers, it’s slow and it could very easily have 4 hands. This would not only test X-2 as a climbing platform but I never built a Quaddra-ped. Why not as they say, “kill two projects with one stone”. A quad that can walk and climb ladders even upside down, like a rock climber under a roof. The untimate all terrain walker?

More from Singularity Hub:

Built out of Lego NXT Mindstorm components, the X-4 is an amateur project that shows professional level daring. Watch the quadruped bot slowly climb its way into the hall of fame in the video below. Did I mention it’s nicknamed the ’sloth’?

and vintage Journey as the soundtrack — bold move.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
